The Bamboo Decking Board Thermo has a classic look and a beautiful, black-brown color. The Bamboo Decking Board Thermo is a high density solid bamboo board made from compressed bamboo fibers. Bamboo Decking Board Thermo is one of the strongest, hardest and most durable materials on the market. With our decking boards you can create the perfect space for relaxation outdoors, in the garden or on the roof terrace.
Unique to these bamboo decking boards is the combination of the head tongue, the choice of two different surfaces and the H-profile. A head tongue can only be made with very stable materials and allows connection of an unlimited number of boards lengthwise. In addition, this decking board offers the possibility to choose between the grooved or the flat surface. Finally, the H-profile on the side allows quick installation with our fasteners.
MAINTENANCEBamboo Decking Board Thermo is a natural product that may vary slightly in color, texture and appearance. With outdoor use, depending on maintenance and its frequency, the color may change to light brown and/or light gray.
Cracks and splinters can be minimized by applying our Bamboo Shield oil. . We recommend, after installation, to treat the decking with our Bamboo Shield oil and then repeat this process annually. This will allow you to enjoy your durable decking for a long time.
The decking can also be kept clean with soap and water. Finally, the decking can be cleaned with a pressure washer. Keep sufficient distance between the sprayer and the deck boards to avoid damage.
With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
More about Bamboo
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
